In Marblehead, a 911 caller was having nun of it

Wicked Local Marblehead reports that on Feb. 20, somebody called 911 to report a nun walking out of a store. Yeah, and? Well, "it wasn’t a correct uniform for this time" and the caller wanted to alert police "how out of place the nun appeared not wearing the typical garb."

The caller had probably just seen The Town and was understandably worried about their local bank https://www.irishcentral.com/uploads/article/122432/The_Town_boston_movi...

After all, that Nun looked just like the (very different order) Nun that robbed the bank last week!

Worth noting that there are a host of "habits" worn by religious orders that may not fit the more-commonly seen apparel. Also, not all religious garb is worn by Roman Catholic nuns. There are Episcopalian orders that still have the habit and even a few evangelical lay orders that wear some kind of specific garb.

Of course, many religious orders have also dispensed with the so-named "habit" in modern times.

Members of the LDS Church (Mormon) that have been received in the Temple are given a set of religious garments that are supposed to be worn underneath one's street clothing. It is symbolic and a reminder of their station as a minister of their faith (both men and women). So they are wearing their garments but are not seen.

Of course, wearing a religious habit is usually a good way of getting a seat on the subway or getting the doors opened for you. Food for thought. :-)

Maybe she was wearing the old style uniform out of habit?

(Sorry, couldn't help myself.)

The link isn't exactly "bad" in the usual way, but you have to register at the site to read any articles at all.

There have been a lot of weird sitcoms with a lot of weird premises, but this one was in somewhat of a class by itself.
